    A deep waste is more like it.

    Misbegotten mess.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    Folks watching any movie that opens with a shot of a butt crack (with the possible exception of "Lost in Translation") can't claim they weren't warned.
    • 34 Metascore

    There are no two ways about it: A chubby-cheeked dummy doing stuff it shouldn't be doing is spooky stuff. But Wan isn't on such sure footing with his actors -- Wahlberg is stilted as the tough-guy cop, and Kwanten is blandly uninteresting.

    Sacre bleu! Bumbling French police inspector Jacques Clouseau is back, and he's never been less funny.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    Lawrence is a comedian with talent who rarely uses it for anything worthwhile, and here he makes a halfhearted, paycheck-collecting effort that's actually in perfect keeping with the rest of the movie's tired, recycled tone.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    In what can only be described as a throwback to the awkward "gay" farces of the 1970s and '80s -- think "The Ritz" and "Partners -- this painfully uncomfortable buddy comedy trips all over itself to say something positive while still managing to offend. Worse still, it's just not funny.

    Forgetting that French New Wave directors often turned to Hollywood for inspiration, cinema snobs will doubtless be outraged that Hollywood would dare remake such a beloved Rohmer masterpiece, when in fact, tone aside, "Chloe In The Afternoon" isn't all that different from "The Seven Year Itch."
    • 15 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    An ugly, unfunny frat comedy.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    It's hard to pinpoint what's most insulting about this obvious propaganda piece.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    Spin it however they like, the troubled but talented Lohan isn't what's wrong with this misbegotten mess.
    • 32 Metascore

    If anyone is to blame for this bomb it's Forte: He wrote the thing, and one would assume he's the one responsible for those uncomfortable silences where jokes are supposed to be.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    Odd, quasi-mystical movie that’s too silly for adults to take seriously and frankly too weird for kids.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    We already knew Hudson and McConaughey weren't exactly Gable and Lombard from their first romantic pairing in "How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days," but director Andy Tennant's complete lack of inventiveness comes as a surprise.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    However deep the divide currently separating the Middle East from the West appears to be, there's at least one thing we can all agree on: Albert Brooks isn't all that funny anymore.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    Huge in scope and beautifully shot on location in South America, this ambitious production is undone by terrible casting choices.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    What a waste. Check out "Breakdown" or Aldo Lado's 1971 Italian giallo "Long Night Of The Short Dolls" for a far better treatments of the same subject.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    It's all a pretentious bore that feels twice as long as it's two-hour running time.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    It's hard to believe this shoddy, dishonest mess is Clark's sixth feature film, and not the unpromising debut of a rank amateur.
    • 13 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    This terrible sequel to a bad movie was directed by Fred Savage, the now-grown star of "The Wonder Years," though there's no evidence of any behind-the-scenes adult supervision.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    The film is really little more than an array of sometimes imaginative images.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    This ersatz jungle adventure is really a thinly disguised Sunday School lesson in faith, charity and the savagery of life without Christ.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    Benigni's artfully composed images are as empty as his political convictions.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    The action has more to do with digital effects than true martial artistry, and is targeted squarely at adolescent boys too young to rent porn and gamers too lazy to yank their own joysticks.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    There's a fine line between subversively transgressive and just plain gross, and this coming-of-age-movies parody from Todd Stephens, who wrote and directed the charming and underrated "Gypsy 83," crashes right over it.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    A dreary, downbeat "Field of Dreams."
    • 19 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    Like everything else about this insulting romantic comedy, the Jessica Alba/Dane Cook love match is degraded by vile jokes, a boorish attitude toward women and a smutty tackiness not seen since those stupid nudie-cuties of the 1960s.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    It's a forgotten piece of history worth recounting. One only regrets it wasn't better recounted than it is here.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    Rather than remake the entire original movie, Simon West and screenwriter Jake Wade Wall have taken only that now-classic first act and padded it out into a dull, filler-filled feature that's remarkably void of any new ideas.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    The downtime between deaths has never been duller, and the Rube Goldberg-type death scenes are so poorly staged that it's difficult to figure out what's about to happen and to whom.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    More cheerful misogyny from writer-director Henry Jaglom.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    It took a century of innovation in the field of cinematic special effects, but finally the head of Marlon Wayans could be successfully grafted onto the body of a baby.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    The film desperately needs a stronger script; one with a few funny jokes would be nice.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Ken Fox
    Though it's quite possibly an even worse film than "Bruce Almighty," the sequel offers at least one consolation: The smug and increasingly unfunny Jim Carrey is replaced by the very talented Steve Carell.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Very possibly the most ruthlessly irritating comedy since the dreaded "S.F.W." attempted to put its finger on the pulse of young America, and that's saying something.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Cloying, immature and relentlessly cute, this grating British comedy about two London con men is every bit as shameless as its heroes.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    One hundred and nine minutes of drama and not a single moment rings true.
    • 10 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    A misconceived roundelay that crosses the thin line dividing gross-but-funny from just plain gross.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Scenes are woefully under-rehearsed, and much of the obviously improvised dialogue would seem entirely random if it weren't so repetitive.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Sitting through this charmless romantic comedy is like going to a restaurant and being seated next to a drunken couple who argue throughout dinner: It's messy, embarrassing and absolutely none of your business, but there's no escape.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    What's most offensive isn't the waste of a good cast, but the film's denial of sincere grief and mourning in favor of bogus spiritualism. Only devotees of Ouija boards and TV's "Crossing Over" will find anything of merit here.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    The game cast does what it can -- it's a good thing Schreiber is naturally funny -- but the situation is hopeless. This is one wreck better left unexplored.
    • 9 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Too lazy to play your own d--- video game? Lucky for you there's horror director-for-hire Uwe Boll, who's making a career out of adapting successful Atari and Sega games into tedious popcorn fare that's the ultimate in cinematic passivity.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Leave something on the shelf long enough and it'll either ripen like cheese or rot like garbage. Guess what: This ain't Camembert.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Most of Halim's script is a laundry list of offensive remarks that he no doubt means to serve as titillating spoof, but none of it's funny or even the least bit provocative, just offensive.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    An unintentional parody of the kind of overwrought melodrama Pedro Almodovar once reworked to far better effect.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    A coarse and unappealing black comedy.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    It doesn't meet the minimum number of laughs to qualify as a comedy -- two would have clinched it -- and it's far too asinine to be taken seriously.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    The screenplay just isn't funny: Most jokes fall flat and just lie there in a pool of their own sick. And while Zwigoff's deadpan pacing was perfect for the wry, sophisticated humor of "Ghost World," here it's a comedy killer; that extra beat after each new outrage is just long enough for viewers to realize just how sad and disturbing it all is.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    What really undoes writer-director John Keitel's admirable intentions is the general lack of artistry on virtually every level.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Despite the overplotting, there's scarcely any of the characterization that might have made some of it interesting.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Dumb premises have driven some wonderful romantic comedies, but for all its vaguely mystical trappings, Prywes's film lacks the magic that makes them work.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    This loud and thoroughly obnoxious comedy about a pair of squabbling working-class spouses is a deeply unpleasant experience.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Ask New York-based filmmaker Amos Poe, who badly botches this profile of the artist with a sloppy structure, careless editing and amateurish optical effects that detract from what's actually good about the film: Earle's music.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Writer-director Richard Ledes' dreadfully misconceived, pitch-black, film-noir comedy seeks to find the humor in the post-WWII mental hygiene boom, and the result is way off target.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Chase is a veritable black-hole of mirthlessness who sucks every ounce of fun out what might otherwise be a fairly diverting comedy.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    If it's all supposed to be in fun, why does it feel so much like an insult?
    • 47 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Tries to leave the impression of Escobar as a positive force whose dirty money actually saved Colombia's economy while those of neighboring Latin American countries collapsed.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Like so much dope humor, Soling's logic is fuzzy, and you'd have to be pretty high to find any of it funny.
    • 15 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    Dull and unimaginative.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    So consistently awful, it's almost entertaining.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    With its porno plot, Undressed production values and ersatz "Will & Grace" banter that manages to be crude without being the least bit funny, Q. Allan Brocka's debut is a tasteless comedy that nevertheless leaves a nasty flavor on the tongue.
    • 12 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    There are worse movies, but that's no excuse. Rarely has so much money delivered so little entertainment.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    The few good lines go to Kristofferson and the ever-amusing Kier, but Snipes's considerable energy is buried under an affectless, Terminator-style demeanor.
    • 5 Metascore
    • 30 Ken Fox
    A turkey with all the trimmings.
    • 17 Metascore
    • 25 Ken Fox
    Overall the movie is too stupid to offend any but the most sensitive viewer.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 25 Ken Fox
    At well over two hours it's merely exhausting, and the constant evocation of the fearsome power of "The Lodge," which proves Pat's salvation (Nwamu is himself a Freemason), is as silly-spooky as the White and Black Lodge hokum of "Twin Peaks."
    • 17 Metascore
    • 25 Ken Fox
    The sadists responsible for the painfully unfunny "Date Movie" (2006) are back, and this time they've outdone themselves: This theater-clearer is even less amusing than its terrible predecessor, a spoof so devoid of laughs it can longer be categorized as a comedy.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 25 Ken Fox
    At a time when the images of Arab-Americans are already largely negative, do we really need more violently temperamental, bomb throwing men in turbans and beards?
    • 25 Metascore
    • 25 Ken Fox
    We're treated to endless scenes of women getting slammed, thrown and clothes lined, while men's genitals are grabbed, groped, stroked and tasered. It's all just as painful as it sounds.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Ken Fox
    Mean-spirited and depressing, this horror movie in comedy disguise delights in the twin spectacles of morbid obesity and domestic abuse, of which children are often the target.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 25 Ken Fox
    The choice is yours: Shell out 10 bucks for this dire spoof of recent romantic comedies a la "Scary Movie" and "Not Another Teen Movie", or toss your 12-year-old nephew a quarter and get him to act out scenes from his favorite movies for 80 minutes: The entertainment value will be about the same.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Ken Fox
    Lacking so much as a shred of wit and crammed with more product placements than jokes, this unendurable stoner comedy clearly disproves the movie-formula wisdom that two guys, one Xbox and a 2-foot-long bong add up to something funny.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Ken Fox
    Adam Sandler can breathe a sigh of relief: Thanks to this crude, bafflingly unfunny comedy from fellow SNL alum Mike Myers, Sandler can rest assured that his "You Don't Mess With The Zohan" won't go down as the worst movie of 2008.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 20 Ken Fox
    Derivative, indifferently acted, artlessly photographed and awash in nudity and rudimentary gore effects, this direct-to-DVD feature mars the producing debut of longtime horror and exploitation distributor Media Blasters.

    While the homeless, the mentally ill and the generally downtrodden are scattered about like so much shabby furniture, Rifkin has no qualms about wallowing in their filth, but he misses the tragedy of their lives -- just as he misses everything else.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 20 Ken Fox
    Garish, animated junk.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 20 Ken Fox
    Farley -- one of the few comedians who could ever be justly accused of debasing the pratfall -- has made a film that's tantamount to watching an overweight man slip on a banana peel for nearly 90 minutes.
    • 1 Metascore
    • 20 Ken Fox
    The cast isn't bad but the movie is, and Amir's use of Holocaust imagery is cheap and unnecessary; Jo and Alexander could just as easily have died on the Titanic. At one point the dialogue is completely drowned out by the roar of the surf, and that is no doubt a blessing.
    • 8 Metascore
    • 20 Ken Fox
    Filled with long, obviously improvised pseudo-philosophical ramblings about nothing -- and that's before the drugs kick in.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 20 Ken Fox
    The real-life Hayata plays himself with little conviction, while the rest of the Spanish-speaking cast give the impression that they don't have the slightest idea what their English-language dialogue means.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 20 Ken Fox
    Plenty of bone-crunching brawn, but not a brain cell in sight.
    • 12 Metascore

    You'd have to be more than merely intoxicated to find anything about this dismal stoner comedy remotely funny. You'd have to be unconscious.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 0 Ken Fox
    This abysmal "Spider-Man" satire has more in common with the lamentable spate of "Epic" and "Date Movies" than Zucker and Nielsen's truly funny "Naked Gun" series.
